    Amazon sent an email just now to all Affiliates. The plugin will not work anymore starting from March 9th 2020, it has been discontinued.

    I have a blog with over 300 product reviews and now I am supposed to manually convert literally thousands of links!

    Very bad experience with AALB! 🙁

    Thanks for the heads up, didn’t get that email despite being an affiliate. I only swapped to using the “official” plugin because the one I was using wasn’t updated.

    I have used the “Find and Replace” plugin last time I needed to fix a bunch of shortcodes.

    Hi @workshopshed what plugin do you use now instead of AALB?

    I’m looking for an alternative without the need to manually edit hundreds of posts (I mean, something that will work with a simple search&replace plugin or, if needed, an UPDATE TABLE in MySQL).

    I’m open to suggestions, I’ve not started using anything else just yet. Perhaps check on the Affiliates forum?

    I found a good alternative. Amazon Auto Links plugin can parse/render AALB shortcodes in both free/pro versions.

    I installed it on my blog and it works like a charm!
